Recommended Reading for Holiday Season – Island Unto Ourselves by Gomathy Puri

A precious gift for the holiday season.

‘While the writing harks back to a way of telling the story with simplicity and grace, in ways gentle and moving, the everyday lives of Rekha and Gopal, Kamala and Rakesh come alive in their nuanced complexity. The stories do get to the heart of the matter unselfconsciously and with ease, albeit too diligently sometimes. They are evocative of the essence of fumbling and evolving relationships, the angst of displacement, loss and love, belonging, and identity. They go beyond really, using the specific and local perspective through grounding in immigrant identity, to make the leap that reveals common humanity wherein we are all indeed `islands unto ourselves.’
